Quotes KRKA vs. Pinar Karsiyaka

22 February 2011

Pinar Karsiyaka Head Coach Hakan Demir:
"Congratulations to Krka. In the first half we played without character. We were still very tired from very though game against Efes Pilsen in Turkish league. In the second half we found our play, hard in defence and very aggressive in offence. Unfortunately the gap was too big, but at least we managed to have an advantage before last round in this group."

Pinar Karsiyaka player Osiris Eldridge:
"In the first half Krka was much better. We tried to fight back in the second half but it was too late. Krka did a good job and deserved to win."

KRKA Head coach Aleksandar Džikić:
"We won against a very good opponent who managed to beat Efes Pilsen three days ago. We managed to come to +18 but then we made some mistakes and they managed to score some incredible points. I couldn't be angry to my players because of that. We managed to come to quarter final and from our game in Antwerp depends whether we'll be first or second in the group. In any case we'll play at least one more game in EuroChallenge in Novo Mesto. I'm glad to ses that so many people came to the game and supported us."

KRKA player Matej Rojc:
"Tonight's game was very though. We played quite good in the first half, but third quarter was still better. Unfortunately in last quarter we did too many mistakes. Luckily we managed to concentrate in last minutes and achieved an important win."
